In the spirit of celebrating its tenth anniversary, Armin Strom has created a first : the Resonance Minute Repeater, a watch that is the essential embodiment of the watchmakers’ impressive technological achievements developed over their decade of existence. Inspired by the centuries-old chiming tower clock in the center of Bern, Armin Strom’s founders decided to work with Le Cercle des Horlogers, a company specialized in creating grand complications, to create the world’s first resonance minute repeater. Encased in a generous 47.7mm Grade 5 titanium case, the watch’s chime is clear and resolute. While Le Cercle des Horlogers took care of the minute repeater movement, Armin Strom added its patented Resonance Clutch Spring, an innovative spring shaped like a prong (visible in the dial center) that helps regulate the frequencies of the two oscillating balance-wheels, as well as improving the watch’s accuracy and energy conservation. The culmination of years of research and development, the Resonance Minute Repeater also offers a foretaste of what we will undoubtedly be seeing more of over the next ten years.
